Michael Zielonka is one of our most experienced Acupuncturists. A native New Yorker, Michael has always felt a passion for helping others. It was a natural progression for him to attend the Pacific College of Oriental medicine in pursuit of his Master of Science Degree in Traditional Oriental Medicine.
While at Pacific College, Michael excelled through rigorous standards of education while studying various treatment modalities including: Acupuncture, herbal medicine, Tui Na massage amongst other holistic medicine-based modalities. In addition, Michael received thousands of hours of combined theory and clinical training on Western anatomy and physiology as well as thorough understanding of biomedical diseases and diagnostic techniques.
Since the beginning of his journey in the field of holistic medicine, Michael has participated in various outreach groups to provide holistic healthcare to indigenous populations around the world. These populations are often impoverished and have little or no access to healthcare. As a core member of these groups, Michael helps provide Acupuncture, herbal medicine as well as health education to these underserved populations.
Fueled by the desire to better understand the human body and the effect of Acupuncture, Michael has continued his studies to pursue advanced degrees in Neurofunctional Acupuncture for the treatment of muscle-skeletal pain and dysfunction.
